We’ve been itching for months to introduce you to our new ambassador, Professor Janet Todd. We’re so proud to count her as one of our supporters – and a very appropriate one at that, as she’s an internationally-renowned academic who founded the first journal devoted to women and literature. She's a scholar of the eighteenth-century Enlightenment and a pioneer of the study of early women’s writing.
Janet Todd has also found time to co-found the MA in Life-writing at the University of East Anglia, and she’s an emerita professor of the University of Aberdeen. With a list of accomplishments that long, it came as no surprise to anyone when she was rewarded for her services to higher education and literary scholarship with an OBE in 2013.
You can see Janet Todd tell her story above: lending her life experience and unique literary knowledge to a discussion of risk, childhood dreams, inspiration… and what she sees in the mirror.
